As one would believe, Tony Stark is the son of Howard Stark. Um… well, not really.
In the comic books, it had been revealed that Iron Man was the adopted son of Howard and Maria. After having met his mother in the previous run, Invincible Iron Man #600 now showed the fans who Tony’s real father is.
Tony’s mother is Amanda Armstrong and she was a pop star and then was contracted by S.H.I.E.L.D. The global tours she went on were perfect covers for her to carry her secret missions. What Tony knew was that she had given her son up for adoption and the father was a fellow S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who had died.
It has been revealed that Tony’s father’s name is Jude and he was a double agent for HYDRA. When she had discovered this, Amanda then killed him and she thought it would be best to leave this and the HYDRA part out while telling Tony about his father.
In Invincible Iron Man #600, Jude then reveals himself to be alive and he commands an army of HYDRA and ensues a battle between Iron Man and his father.
